Hey there, I'm Kimberley, and I've been growing concerned with the consumption of technological resources in the expanding creative industries. As part of the PhD in Emergent Technologies and Media Arts Practices at CU Boulder, I will research peer-to-peer tools for investigating the social, cognitive, ecological and technological dimensions of sustainable media arts practices.
circuitBoard media arts meetups are a participatory space for investigating the way we prototype and interact with technology and artifacts. I'm interested in how social peer-to-peer processes can engage artists in dialogue around sustainability, and manage resources based on trust and cooperation. circuitBoard meetups aim to generate new concepts of how we distribute technology and tools in creative, social spaces and to identify ways of sharing agency with others.
This version of the website is a brainstorming project for the platform. I hope that the platform will eventually be created and designed with collaborators for more secure, open and serious use. The next stage of this project will be on the chat client.

Look carefully at the so-called immaterial world of the information age: it takes a lot of material to realise the immaterial. The overly euphoric inhabitants of virtual worlds who wish to leave their bodies overlook the obvious facts that the networks which convey their fantasy-existence are made of parts assembled in Malaysia or Taiwan or Mexico or in other low wage countries.
